NOAA Loses Four Critical Days In December | Real Science
In order to determine if 2012 was the hottest year in the US, I need to see the temperatures for the last four days – which are missing. Many stations, Like Lemon Cove, CA have January data, but no data for December 28-31. Less than 10% of the stations have Dec. 28-31 data listed. That looks very suspicious.

The reason these days are critical is because they were far below normal temperatures. As of November – 2012 was in the number three spot, but a warm first three weeks of December moved it up to #1. If the last four days were more than 10 degrees below normal, then 2012 would drop back to the #2 position.
Alaska Polar Bear Habitat Designation Tossed By Judge |
Another federal judge reins in an out-of-control federal agency.

“A federal judge in Alaska has thrown out a plan designating more than 187,000 square miles as habitat for threatened polar bears. U.S. District Judge Ralph Beistline, in a written order dated Thursday, said the designation was too extensive and presented ‘a disconnect between the twin goals of protecting a cherished resource and allowing for growth and much needed economic development.’ He sent the matter back to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to correct “substantive and procedural deficiencies.” [Huffington Post]

This is almost unheard of. Must be due to warm air streaming down from the rapidly melting Arctic.
So Fake It’s Real: Global Warming is Reality TV for the Media Elite - John Ransom - Townhall Finance Conservative Columnists and Financial Commentary
Here’s my challenge to all the global warming apologists:

Explain to me why the “settled science” of global warming has to manipulate headlines to make information appear scarier and more threatening than the actual data shows.

If global warming is so settled, why do you and your friends take the opportunity to exaggerate, obfuscate and slant every piece of news that comes out to make it seem relevant to today?
